George Washington


Formed from the amalgamation of 3 primary schools the new building includes extensive community access and specialist provision.

This brief called for a dramatic design to act as a focus for the social and physical restoration of the area.

Accommodation includes an indoor swimming pool, community areas and extensive changing facilities for the pool, sports hall and the all weather external pitches. Internally the design provided a stimulative and colourful design for young people at “low level” and utilises strong design form and quality materials – perhaps best demonstrated by the use of quality curved beams to pool and exposed laminated beams to the sports hall.
